Charmr is a quick way to make one-of-a-kind 3D jewelry with a photo of your choice.

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, this customizer allows you to personalize a charm or pendant for the person you love most – kid, mom or pet. Charmr enables you to put together a 3D printable design in just minutes!

For added fun, tag your charm as LOV3D to have it appear in our special gallery dedicated to all things love!

Project Shapeshifter

Project Shapeshifter is a browser-based tool for generating interesting geometric shapes, and then exporting them for 3D printing. We think it is a fun and interesting way to produce gifts and ornaments that show off what you can do with 3D printing. It’s a product of Autodesk’s Research labs, and highlights a possible direction for making 3D design and printing accessible to everyone!

Check out the tutorial videos to see how you can get started with Shapeshifter.
